Once you have broken the ice and spent some time flirting, it’s time to move on and get a date. It’s the man’s job to do this and his aim should be to get the woman’s contact details so that he can set up the date. The woman’s job is to signal absolutely clearly that she is interested, otherwise he might take fright and never ask for the date.
Don’t rush into this, take it step by step. Start by reminding her what a fun time you’ve just had – revisit some of your earlier exchanges. If she had mentioned any hobbies or interests, then pick up on that and suggest something fun to do together that is connected in some way.
If she says no, suggest something else, but if she says no again, it’s over, so bail out quickly. If she says yes, offer her your phone number and/or email address and then ask for hers. (Men and women can keep separate flirting phone numbers and email addresses.)
Taking it gradually like this avoids the possibility of embarrassment through misreading the signals – there are plenty of chances to withdraw.
